The Faculty is for people who want to keep learning. It’s a loose umbrella of events and courses for people who want to expand their horizons and learn new skills. Our new partnership with Blick Studios and Infinite Jest is only a few months old but most of our events are selling out. It seems that just because you’ve left […]
Over the past two years Hit the North has gone from strength to strength, helping transform the Cathedral Quarter, and bringing high quality street art into the public consciousness like never before. Plans are already underway for this year’s event. Painting will commence in early September and continue up to the main festival on 18th & 19th September, playing a huge part in Culture Night and the CNX programme.
We are delighted to be continuing to work with our commissioning organisation and delivery partner, the brilliant Community Arts Partnership. We are also thrilled that Becks have chosen to sponsor the event.
More news to follow. In the meantime, check out last year’s festival…
The Faculty seemed like the perfect excuse to start a film club, something we’ve been thinking about since Seedhead was born. And after a pub conversation with local film maker Phil Harrison, here we are.

Since November 2012 Seedhead Arts has been running and developing Real Sketchy, a open live sketching event taking place in a bar environment. Over the years it’s developed from something that was largely populated by artists to being somewhere that anyone can have a wee sketch and a laugh over a few pints. Although inspired by the spirit of Street […]
It’s been a year since I wrote a wee blog about how the Single Transferable Voting system works and now it’s time for another election. This time unfortunately we’re stuck with the ridiculous first past the post system, a system which leaves most people in the country feeling helpless because most seats in Northern Ireland are considered safe. I did […]
Right guys it’s Small Business Saturday so we’ve got our Small Business Santa Blog. As a small business we’re all about trying to support some small businesses and this year we’ve been making a deliberate effort to spend less money in big corporations and more in local business. Among the many joys that this has given us it has lead […]
This morning I got onto an argument on twitter with a young lady who was suggesting that in the current climate she didn’t believe in funding the arts. An 11-15% cut isn’t enough for her obviously, she wants to stop funding the arts altogether… cause y’know, the health service and that. To be fair I kind of lost the rag […]
